Corbyn frank during interview at Durham Miners’ Gala
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has spoken publicly about the BBC’s heavily-criticised Panorama programme last week. Corbyn spoke frankly about his low opinion of the programme’s standards – and stood clearly in support of both Labour members and the party’s much-maligned staff.
Corbyn told Sky News that Panorama contained multiple inaccuracies – and followed a pre-determined line. He also underlined that members have a right to be heard if they are accused and that staff have a right to be supported:
Corbyn’s comments about the woeful standards demonstrated by the BBC’s Panorama could apply equally well to the vast majority of the so-called ‘mainstream’ media.
The smears continue, of course – the Establishment has nothing else to offer.
